An end of year update on Fannish New Year Resolutions (2007)

Following on from my September update on my 2007 Fannish New Year Resolutions, this is how I finished the year.

1. To finish the Fanfic Challenges I have taken up.

2. To write some longer Gibbs/Ducky stories.

This I haven't really achieved as I only managed two *sigh*.

The Common Factor is over 13,000 words
Learning To Trust (which will appear in the NCIS Gibbs/Ducky zine that periwinkle27 is producing) is over 37,000 words.

However, I have several longer stories in the works for this year.

3. To take part in more ncis_flashfic challenges.

4. To write in fandoms other than NCIS.

5. To install Paint Shop Pro on my computer - and teach myself to use it.

Well, I have installed it. I have also used it to 'tart' up some of my icons, but beyond that I still haven't gone *sigh*. It's so much easier to use the program I know (MS's Photo Draw), even if I then tidy it up in PSP *blush*

6. To get the non-fiction part of my website updated and remove the 'This Page Is Under Construction' message.

Amongst other things I aim to have an episode guide for each fandom (with short descriptions of each episode) and character studies.

I haven't done as much of this as I'd intended. So this is still on on-going project.

7. To go through my zine collection and decide what I really am not going to re-read.

Five filing cabinet drawers full of zines, plus a shelf of digest seems a tad too much - especially as I know there are some I'm not going to re-read.

I still haven't even begun to do this one *sigh*

So at at 2nd January, 2008 I am pretty pleased with what I achieved, resolution-wise, during 2007 - especially the number of non-Gibbs/Ducky stories I wrote during the year - I certainly achieved that resolution :-)
